Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara,
Before Deepavali 2016 Adiyen posted a message stating that we are starting off with reading of Deivathin Kural volume 1. It has been more than two years since then and with Paripoorna Krupa of Sri Maha Periyava and our Aacharyal’s anugraham we have successfully completed reading Volume 1. Tomorrow (Dec. 22) we are starting with reading of Volume 2.
A word about our sathsangam:
Our’s is a completely virtual sathsangam attended by few folks from Bharatham and US over Skype. We start with Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara chanting for a minute, read the chapters, and close with Hare Rama Hare Krishna chanting (5 mins) for Loka Kshemam. Smt. Sowmya, our asthana blog artist reads the chapters and the rest of us listen attentively.
We don’t rush through chapters for the sake of completing it. We read the chapters in sequence at a measured pace, contemplate on Sri Periyava’s teachings with crisp recap of every chapter, discuss key takeaways from every chapter/section, etc. That said, we won’t digress and the focus is always razor sharp on Periyava’s words. We have also recorded every session (audio) and will post it shortly for devotees benefit.
Tomorrow (Dec 22) we are starting off with Volume 2 and I take this opportunity to invite you all to attend. Some have asked me if they should have completed Volume 1 to understand Volume 2. Not really. Every topic has been logically arranged by Shri Ra Ganapathi Anna in such a way that anyone can read any volume and stay fully connected with the content and upadesams of Periyava.
It does not matter which part of the world you live in, whether you are at home or in-transit; just dial-into the below conference (which is free), give your ears and attention. That is all needed for this Periyava Sathsangam. Consistency in attending will see us transform over a period of time. Needless to say this sathsangam has transformed many of us leaps and bounds from where we were, which I wanted to share with you all so someone else gets benefited by it.
